The 2013 Newport Beach Boat Parade is the premier Christmas event not only for Orange County and Los Angeles but Southern California. With more than 104 years of history, the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade is viewed by over one and half million people each year. Newport Harbor comes alive with decorations for the boat parade. Homes, yachts, docks whole landscapes are fully decorated and transformed into a magical holiday experience. Newport Beach begins its holiday decorations after Thanksgiving and by the first of December the harbor is richly illuminated with thousands of lights and hundreds of themed estates. The parade takes place over 5 nights from the third Wednesday in December to the third Sunday. This year's parade is December 18 to Dec 22 2013.
Newport Landing provides 3 cruises each night of the parade. Cruises during the parade travel in the parade and view both ships and estates in full décor. Be in the parade without having to own and decorate your own boat. All our ships are fully decorated for this amazing holiday event.
